My Weird Recent Amazon Purchases

View More:

Hi, My Name is Ashley, And I’m Addicted To Amazon. 

It’s true. I’m weirdly addicted to Amazon. I love getting funny little gadgets, I just can’t help it. Also the “one click” buy gets me every time. But let’s face it Amazon is like a Brookstone, Skymall, Target, and Barnes & Noble all rolled into one… so there’s really little not to love. 

I’ve recently placed some interesting orders on Amazon, and for the sake of keeping it real (…and a being able to write it off come tax season ;)) I thought it would be fun to share them here with you! 

I hope you enjoy, and PLEASE do me a favor and leave me a comment letting me know what weird things you’ve recently ordered as well… it helps to know I’m not the only one!

5 Random Things I’ve Recently Purchased on Amazon


Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard

I figured I’d jump right out of the gate with a weird one for ya! But in all seriousness, this thing is so helpful. I’ve been having such a hard time keeping up with DMs over on Instagram and was searching for a solution. I’d been linking my apple wireless keyboard up to my phone, but it just didn’t seem like a forever solution, and that’s when I came across this! A foldable Bluetooth keyboard, boom! I purchased it in one click and I haven’t looked back!

Rainbow Pastel Highlighters

… because everyone needs them. Duh. This was a total impulse purchase but seriously worth it. I love these markers and have made scheduling and just overall life so much better. Such a great use of $8.98!

5 – 1 tbs Measuring Spoons

Again, this weird, I know. BUUUUT let me just tell you how much these have changed our lives. We make smoothies every single morning and have all of these jars of chia seeds, flax seeds, etc. and we were using upwards of 4 spoons per smoothie and I just couldn’t deal. We never had spoons that were clean because we had used them all. So one day I just said “no”. We are buying spoons and keeping them in the jars. Best decision ever. Now when I pull out the jar of chia seeds in the morning the spoon is already inside and ready. Efficiency at it’s finest!

Wifi Camera – “The Dolly Cam”

We are those crazy people who think their dog is a person and I don’t care who knows it. She’s a perfect little ball of fluff and my best friend, so she deservers the finer things in life… like her very own camera. 

This is one of the BEST purchases we’ve ever made. We set it up in front of her crate when we leave the house and we are able to check on her throught the day. It’s kind of amazing/creepy. 

Also, as a side note, you can travel with this as well which is awesome! We’ve taken it with us on multiple trips, total game changer.

Ember Coffee Mug

To be fair, I didn’t purchase this one, although this is something I would totally buy so I’m adding it in here because it’s amazing! Last month, Ryan surprised me with the Ember coffee mug and it has completely changed everything. Worth every. single. penny. 

The mug keeps my coffee at the exact right temperature down to the very last drop. It’s magic! No more trips to the microwave every 4.5 minutes for a reheat. Seriously, do yourself a favorite and order this.

    Can you believe that I never bought on Amazon? Even tough, I check some things on the site (like books and classic/vintage movies), I haven’t bought a thing there yet! Loving those rainbow highlighters! ❤

    Ashley, that tablespoon issue is real!! I wash my single tablespoon 1000x a day. I’m going to need to take your advice! My recent weird purchases are reusable straw cleaners… they look like mascara wands and Bewitched on DVD.
